Course DescriptionIn this course, students will acquire the knowledge and skills for solving various scientific problems and analyzing data using modern computational techniques tools. The first part of the course (taught by E. Abdikamalov) includes certain subjects related to the traditional numerical analysis, such as finding roots of systems of algebraic equations, numerical interpolation and extrapolation of data, etc. and employs Python as the main programming tool. The second part of the course (taught by S. Bubin) is designed to help students learn about methods of simulating various systems and phenomena governed by ordinary and partial differential equations. Along the way students will acquire some familiarity with common software tools and paradigms used in high-performance computing (Fortran, numerical libraries, parallel programming).
